DSA Global Summit 2021, 8th – 10th June

You are invited to the ninth annual DSA Global Summit 2021

Shining a light on spectrum sharing success

The 2021 Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) Global Summit will shine a light on key spectrum sharing successes over the last year and look forward to the future of dynamic spectrum sharing.

The DSA will welcome ITU’s Mario Maniewicz and ANATEL’s Leonardo Euler alongside speakers from the Communications, and Information Technology Commission (CITC) in Saudi Arabia, the Communications Authority of Kenya Adaptive Spectrum and Signal Alignment (ASSIA) among many government and industry leaders at the virtual Global Summit 2021, 8th – 10th June.

The Summit will reflect on spectrum sharing successes around the world with a particular focus on regional developments and inter-regional exchanges. The triumphs of spectrum sharing throughout 2020-2021 will guide discussions to focus on current use-cases and look ahead to future progress. This will offer policymakers, industry experts and spectrum sharing advocates the opportunity to collaborate and address the challenges of soaring broadband demands and the work still needed to bridge the digital divide.  

“To maintain momentum made in this last year regarding dynamic spectrum access, the DSA encourages the industry and government officials from around the world to come together and continue to endorse the use of spectrum sharing approaches. In 2021 alone we have seen significant progress in countries like Brazil, Canada and Saudi Arabia, but the work is far from finished,” said Martha Suarez, DSA President. “Following the success of our first ever virtual summit in 2020, which saw a record number of attendees, I am excited to announce the DSA 2021 Virtual Global Summit. By taking place online, the summit will be accessible and safe for all, despite the ongoing pandemic.”
